Notable among the 2017 winners were Miss Philippine Canada Resham Ramirez Saeed, Miss Teen Philippines Canada Jenna Ramos, Mrs. Philippines Canada Laila Elcano, Little miss Philippines Canada Marianne Barcarse and Little Mr Philippines Aidan Rodricks. Pinoy Fiesta is indeed the biggest Filipino Canadian Beauty pageant in Canada.
